Site rehaul

Allright, it's time for a new look here at the LLamabutchers, a new coat of paint, maybe a new couch, freshening up the look a wee bit.

One thing I'd like to do is get a blog skin option that has a clean white screen feel to it.

Another is going to be a major weed wacking to the blogrolls.

We've got blogrolls out the wazoo here, and at one point I found them useful, but not really anymore. Have blogrolls lost their usefullness? I think one thing I'm going to dump is the RINO list---not for ideological reasons (although that McCain/Hillary drinking contest story, even if apocryphal, is reason enough alone), but mainly because most of the blogs are listed elsewhere. The moo knew list is going to stay out of loyalty to the collective, but other than that, I think a nice clean shave might be in order. Thoughts? Robbo?

Yips! from Robbo: Well, I happen to think it's more a matter of being better about pruning than yanking stuff out at the roots. Certainly we've got a lot of needless duplication, and I've been meaning to go through and cut dead or no longer read links for a while. On the other hand, though, I depend pretty heavily on the rolls for surfing purposes.

I dunno. While it would be refreshing to drop my two blogrolls, I do actually use them to surf. Then again, my blogrolls are at least 50% smaller than most out there. ;-)

Hide 'em! The Agent did that for me over on my blog and it sure does make it look nice and neat.

I like the current look, but it does tend to load slowly, and a lot of times the posts float behind the right-hand sidebar...

Other than that, more Llamas, I say!
